Inmark Tower- Mighty wind turbine rises over George Street
20 Jan

The wind turbine has been installed on top of the George Street (Haymarket precinct, near China Town) Inmark Tower.
It is Sydney’s first wind turbine – in ideal situations it will contribute to the power for the base build common areas (corridors / lobbies+stair lighting, etc).


The design initially proposed a bank of three wind turbines.
The 35 storey residential tower (retail base) had the initial concept design done by Project Architecture with the further design done by PTW Architects.
The project, due for completion in March 2011, consists of two separate residential towers, with 3 levels of commercial and retail space and a landscaped garden for communal use on level 19 of the high-rise.
